Broncos’ Vickerson wants NFL to fine quarterbacks for flopping.
 
Broncos’ Vickerson wants NFL to fine quarterbacks for flopping

Broncos defensive tackle Kevin Vickerson picked up a costly penalty in his team’s loss to the Colts when he bumped into Andrew Luck, who appeared to flop to the ground intentionally to get the referee to flag Vickerson for roughing the passer. Vickerson thinks Luck is the one who should have been penalized.

Vickerson told the Associated Press he wants the NFL to start fining quarterbacks who flop to try to draw flags, saying that football should follow the lead of basketball, where players can be disciplined for flopping.

“All the quarterbacks in the world are the chosen ones,” Vickerson said. “The NFL should have the same rules they have in the NBA about flopping.”

Vickerson’s penalty for bumping Luck came in the same week that Washington quarterback Robert Griffin III said he tries to bait defensive players into personal fouls, then backtracked when that became a subject of controversy. But NFL head of officiating Dean Blandino says the league’s officials don’t flag quarterbacks for flopping.

“We officiate, does the contact violate a rule?” Blandino said. “But not if a player is trying to buy a foul. We know basketball has a foul for flopping. We don’t.”

Vickerson thinks they should.

Moron still doesn't get it.

I think they should just fine players for being retarded, whether that's because of flopping or being Kevin Vickerson.

Kevin Vickerson, of course, will be getting fined every game. Which is how it should be.

What were the benefits of running into Luck at the end of that play? I'm genuinely curious.

Stop taking late chip shots at quarterbacks you musty donkey twat.

The donkey receivers should get penalized every play for crying for a flag

Fine the bastard just for talking about fining.

Mother****erJones 10-31-2013 05:01 PM

Stop cheap shotting QBs. I know luck was a flop but he should be suspended for stupidity

Mother****erJones 10-31-2013 05:01 PM

NFL should fine Denver for crying

That dude's quickly ascending my list of hated players

I wonder what emotion Vickerson will feel in week 11 when he sees #18 flopping on the ground like a carp out of water holding his breath to escape the pain of being crushed between 2 speeding trucks.


I hope he kicks his feet up and down for good measure.

Luck flopped, but Vickerson was totally being a giant bitch.

Vickerson deserved that flag. 100%.
